migrate from Windows to a unix environment

Looking for some guidance please, I've been died in the wool windows for years, but it's reached the point where I'm looking at migrating my laptop over to a unix (probably mint) environment, the laptop can't be migrated over to Win 11, AMD have dropped all support for the A9 processors, even on Win 10, and the video is becoming increasingly unstable on things like Youtube, and right now, the price of a decent laptop to replace it is not appealing, so I'm going to experiment on an old but fast Intel machine that also can't run win 11 and see what it all looks like.

From what I can see, the anyrail app has been tested on Wine, so it should work, what I need to know is how I move my registration over to the unix machine, it's that long ago I got the original, I'm not even  sure what the registration code is for the windows machine, it's one of the few non core applications I use that does not have native support in a non windows environment.




The license is simply a long text string which was in an email sent to you when you registered the software.  It is used in conjunction with your customer name for the software (also given in the same email).  When you run the software it offers a large registration button accessed via the Help option under the File tab.  In a current installation that will allow you to see the customer name used which might just help when searching old emails.

If you no-longer have those details or that email, then you can perhaps contact David (creator of AnyRail) with details of the email address that you used when registering.  A suggestion if I may - don't put email addresses in plain text here in the forum, just to avoid feeding the spammers out there.


We do not test AnyRail with Wine. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
Very often there are suble problems with fonts, scaling, etc.
We don't provide support for problems with AnyRail on Wine.

I could not find your license with the email address you use for the forum. Could you please send us an email with the email address you originally used when you purchased the license? We'd gladly resend your license.

just one remark:

AnyRail 6.53/6.54 runs fine with Wine in Wine 32bit Environment. (Debian 12 64bit virtual Machine)
